July, 2017: Regional Ecosystem Publication
PHOENIX/MINNESOTA SOCIAL INNOVATIONS, ENTERPRISE, AND PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS edition and launch event will showcase the Phoenix and/or Minnesota’s most innovative solutions to solve society’s toughest problems. Across the globe there has been a rapid rise globally in the number of social sector innovators and entrepreneurs who want to find innovative ways to solve or “move the needle” on society’s problems, and they are increasingly deploying the methods of business and private capital if that helps them to do so. They include people in the social sector who can now tap the markets for finance in addition to seeking grants from donors, and philanthropists who are willing to fund innovative ideas and businesses driven by social entrepreneurs and social sector organizations if they offer a greater likelihood of achieving the social impact they desire. The force capable of driving a social sector revolution is Phoenix and/or Minnesota’s social innovation, enterprise, and partnerships that harness innovation, entrepreneurship, partnerships and capital to power social impact.
